Are You Making Money and Making a Difference?

Money is neither good nor bad. It’s intangible. It doesn’t think. It doesn’t feel. It does nothing on its own. Making money is something the government does. They design it, they print it, they make it. We don’t make money, we earn it. We either earn it honestly or we earn it dishonestly. There are lots of ways to earn money honestly, and anyone can do it.

Cleaning toilets, mowing lawns, affiliate programs, teaching, painting houses, braiding hair, Google ads, washing cars, winning food design contests. These are all effective ways to earn money honestly. Some people earn lots of money doing these things, some earn people a little bit of money doing them.

It’s not the amount of money or the way it’s honestly earned that makes the difference. What makes the difference is what is done with the money after it’s earned.

Money is neither good nor bad. It’s intangible. It doesn’t think. It doesn’t feel. It does nothing on its own.

Question: What difference will you make with the money you earn today?

    dM, in addition to creating another income stream for my family; there are numerous individuals who are either overseas missionaries or in full time ministry that I hope to support. I also feed, clothe, educate and house a little girl in Uganda whose parents are dying of AIDS. Her name is Rosette and she is 8 years old. It is very fulfilling to give back to those less privileged than I. Thanks for asking!
